National Walking Day is April 6, offering a great reminder for people of all ages and fitness levels that walking is an ideal way to stay healthy and active. Research has shown walking can help improve health and curb health care costs, helping people to maintain a healthy weight, prevent and manage conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, strengthen bones, ward off depression and improve balance and coordination. New technologies, such as fitness trackers, are making walking more engaging. In Michigan, employers and employees can enroll in a program from UnitedHealthcare. As part of National Walking Day, UnitedHealthcare is conducting a “1 Billion Step Challenge.” They are challenging members to walk, in aggregate, 1 billion steps on April 6. Red Fox Outfitters of Fenton has started its running and walking groups for anyone who would like to walk or run various lengths of routes throughout Fenton. Information about the free, family friendly groups is available on Red Fox Outfitters’ Facebook page.
